A Moment to Share

The week has been so full of children, outings, cleaning, organizing...  I haven't done a stitch of sewing.  I have been getting to know my newest addition to 'the team'.  My husband had this wrapped under the tree for me and ooooh it's so awesome (not to mention... RED!).

thank you Michael!  xo

I haven't made a proper trip out to take photos yet, but I' have been testing it out around the house.

in my sewing room at night - 'Pippin' threadpainting

I cannot WAIT to photograph my new work this year.  I was only thinking about landscape photography, but this will be excellent to keep record of my work.

Preparing for the new year, I managed to completely clean & reorganize my sewing space.  I love to do that after each show.  AH that is the BEST feeling.  All of last year's paper work is done too now.  Thank-you cards have been mailed out.  I even cleaned out my inbox.  You know THAT is major work too, right?  ; ) 

My team.  Ready to go to work in 2013!  : )

Good gosh I feel blessed.  I love my studio.  I love my new Nikon.  I can't tell you how happy I am with my Janomes.  I'm excited to create, create, create.  2013 will bring some travel experiences my way too!  I really look forward to meeting some of these blogger friends for real.  I hope to make one more post to wrap up 2012.  See you soon!

beautiful new silks under the tree for me - from Meinke Toy and some from Margot too : )
